Sydney, Australia – October 14, 2022 – Immutable X, an industry-leading NFT minting and trading platform and the world’s first Layer 2 rapid-scaling solution on Ethereum, today announced a partnership with Martian Premier League (MPL), the world’s first football management simulation game on Mars.
The Martian Premier League represents a new breed of entertainment franchise that features a richly interconnected world of story, gameplay, culture and lifestyle. Players can choose routes that capture their imagination and can even own part of the adventure. The platform is already resonating with gamers, as it demonstrated industry-leading retention during its recent pre-season training “Bootcamp” game.
The MPL founding team brings a uniquely diverse background that covers deep expertise across technology and web3, media and entertainment, gaming, esports and technology investing. The team has worked with some of the biggest games (Counter-Strike, FIFA) and largest franchises (Harry Potter, Marvel) in the world. There is also deep web3 expertise with the team having experience working on the launch of USDC.
"We are committed to making The Martian Premier League one of the first entertainment franchises to come out of web3. To do that we need to find partners who are committed as we are to onboarding the next generation of MPL fans" said Tom Greene, MPL co-founder. “When we were looking for an L2 solution for our first MPL game, we were really impressed by the Immutable team. Beyond the obvious technical advantages of the Immutable platform, we found a team that shares our passion for delightful user experiences and deep gameplay."
This partnership is part of a larger trend that’s seeing an increasing number of web3 games becoming part of the Immutable X ecosystem due to its greater stability, higher transactions per second, carbon neutrality and zero-gas fees. With high-profile hacks becoming commonplace on other blockchains, Immutable’s partners also gain the benefit of the higher security on Ethereum. In addition, the Immutable X platform offers its users seamless onboarding into web3 gaming, with true ownership of their digital goods.
“Martian Premier League represents a new level of innovation in games from an experienced and talented team, and we are proud to have been selected to power its platform with our superior Layer 2 technology that provides an unsurpassed web3 gaming experience,” said Robbie Ferguson, Co-Founder of Immutable. “MPL is also one of the first organizations in the IMX Advisory Service Program, and Immutable is excited to work closely with its team to launch a truly out-of-this-world gaming platform.”
Immutable X will act as official advisors to the Martian Premier League.
“We’re deeply excited about sports management as a key genre for web3 gaming; the team at Martian Premier League have created an incredible community around the Gaffer’s plan for Mars since their launch, and we cannot be more delighted to support them as they turn their attention to building a defining sports management experience for web3” said Jack Leung, who leads Immutable’s Advisory Practice.
Immutable is the fastest Australian company to reach unicorn status — earlier this year, Immutable announced a $200 million series C fundraising round led by Temasek, and included Tencent and Animoca Brands. The company is valued at $2.5 billion and plans to use the funds to help drive its global expansion.
